Enterprise Finland services
Public business services can be accessed through three channels. An enterprise or a start-up entrepreneur does not need to know in advance which organisation they should contact but they can find a solution through the channels of Enterprise Finland regardless of the situation.
Yrityssuomi.fi online service
The Enterprise Finland online service (Yrityssuomi.fi) offers enterprises and start-up entrepreneurs up-to-date information on entrepreneurship and corporate activities, as well as corporate services and tools. Yrityssuomi.fi contains all of the key forms that are needed in the establishment of an enterprise and in functioning as an enterprise.
The service also includes an entrepreneur’s own electronic desk My Enterprise Finland (oma.yrityssuomi.fi), which offers information based on the user’s profile information, as well as tools to help entrepreneurs and those planning to go into business. Service users may also ask for advice from public business advisers through the My Enterprise Finland website.
The service contains information on all persons providing public business advice who can be reached digitally through the My Enterprise Finland service. An enterprise can also form networks online with other enterprises or experts that provide public advice.
The My Enterprise Finland service also includes a My Enterprise Finland Customer Service workspace, which is a place for experts that provide public business advice to form networks and share their knowledge and experiences.

The Enterprise Finland telephone service is a national service channel of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment for entrepreneurs and those planning on going into business.
